Assembly needs conservative leadership


September 30, 2010

Being at every borough assembly meeting and most school board meetings for the past two years, it is obvious to me that we need new, experienced members on the assembly. We have the opportunity to do that by electing Linda Geise to seat "B," and write-in candidate Karen Hess to seat "E." We are at a point where the assembly needs good, conservative leadership. Both Linda and Karen have proved themselves to care about all residents of our valley, Linda on the Haines City Council, Karen on the Haines Borough Assembly.

The assembly incumbent makes many claims; unfortunately the record does not support the claims. The other candidates do not have elected office experience. On the school board, I fully support Brenda Jones and Sarah Swinton.
